Character Information

Words on right: Character Introduction
Monster = Evil, who the heck made that rule? This story will destroy that assumption, with monsters fighting for peace.

She has a pure heart, and is careless and lively. A self-declared idol of the Monster World?

As can be seen, his huge bulk contributes much to his bursts of power. Has a kind heart, and actually gets moved easily and cries.

He doesn’t care if it’s human or monster, if it’s a bad guy he won’t let him off! Is [black Airs] most temperamental?

ACROSS PAGES: Black Airs Revealed!

On banner: The Monster Troops’ Strongest Group
In box: [black Airs] … is relatively the most active monster group in the war between humans and monsters long long ago. There are 4 group members, add Joba and there’re 5.

Although small and relatively weak, his caring heart for his comrades is bigger than anybody’s!

Gathered monsters and tried to start a war again, is the leader of a rebellion.

Was a monster who bullied Aki when he was a kid. The reason for bullying him hides a surprising secret?

Very intelligent, is the big sister of [black Airs]. Has been taking care of Aki and the others since young.

Vargan Brothers>
Monster bounty hunters. Only their slyness is above average.

The complete volume of Monsters – excerpt
Aki Species:? Type: monster
In pic: ------ every bullet hit him!
Although able to move at speeds too fast for the human eye to follow, sometimes that power doesn’t work. One of the reasons is not thinking carefully before moving. Usually a carefree fellow, but once you antagonize him….
Reward: J1000-
Danger level: one star

Aki Soul form
Species: Diawolf Type: s-class monster
Text Below pic:
Once Aki gets angry, he’ll turn into his diawolf soul form. Though his explosive strength and speed increases significantly, a flaw is that he’ll immediately fall into a deep sleep. With a strong body as a weapon, he’s a master at using Monster Fist, and has an ultimate attack.
Reward: J7000000-
Danger Level: unmeasurable

No, this was before Fairy Tail. I think that this was a test for Fairy Tail.

You've obviously never heard of the notorious Hagiwara Kazushi, the mangaka of Bastard!!

Infamous for being lazy and not finishing his chapters for the monthly deadline in Ultra Jump (A lot of sketching that's finalized for the tankobon release) and taking multiple month breaks after a chapter.
